Go Cubs go! The World Series of baseball will begin in Ohio on Oct. 25th at Progressive Field when the Chicago Cubs take on the Cleveland Indians. First pitch will be thrown at 8:08pm EST so don’t miss a single strike and watch every batter online here!
This is it, the big show! The Chicago Cubs have waited for over a hundred years for the opportunity to win another World Series and it has been almost as long for the Cleveland Indians. The stakes are high as these two teams from the heartland of America battle it out during game 1 beginning in Cleveland. The Tribe will have the home field advantage thanks to the American League winning the All-Star game this year. Both teams are stacked on every side of the ball, hitting, fielding, pitching and relieving so this will be a series no baseball fan will want to miss. WATCH CUBS VS. INDIANS ONLINE HERE.
Serving up the heat for the Cubs will be their ace starter Jon Lester who will be facing the Indians top man, Corey Kluber. Jon has been just nasty in the postseason with a wicked ERA of 0.86 and the guy has not lost a game in 3 playoff starts. Jon was in a zone against the Los Angeles Dodgers whom the Cubs beat in 6 games during the NLDS to earn the trip to the World Series. Good luck to the Indian lineup getting wood on any of Jon’s pitches.
Corey has also been lights-out as a starter for the Indians. While his ERA in October has been 0.98, he did notch the Indians only loss in the 2016 postseason when he dropped a game to the Toronto Blue Jays 1-5. Corey’s other two playoff starts have been shutouts so he will be keeping Cubs batters guessing with his fast and curveballs. Good luck to both teams during this game 1 of what will certainly be an exciting series.
